Comparison of ESC and ACC/AHA guidelines for myocardial revascularization


In 2014, the Task Force on Myocardial Revascularization of the European Society of Cardiology and the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery with the special contribution of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions published a comprehensive set of recommendations on myocardial revascularization in patients presenting with acute or chronic coronary artery disease. In the United States, pertinent guidance on this topic has been published by the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association and other relevant societies in multiple guideline documents that have been published in recent years. This document brings together European and American recommendations on myocardial revascularization with a focus on the role of cardiac imaging.
